Let us customise this sample itinerary to make your dream safari

Overview

It is possible to spend 13 days in Africa with a more limited budget that provides good value. We see ‘good value’ as game viewing in some of the continent’s best parks and reserves while staying at comfortable accommodation that has all you need without being over the top.

You will kick off in the charming town of Arusha, the gateway to Tanzania’s most popular safari route. From there, your guide will drive you through the jaw-dropping scenery and fantastic wildlife of Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, the Karatu region, and the one-and-only Ngorongoro Crater.

You then fly to Serengeti National Park where, if your timing is right, you might see Africa’s greatest show: the incomparable Great Wildebeest Migration. Hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, closely followed by zebra and antelope, cross the Serengeti’s iconic savannah in search of fresh water and grazing. There is nothing to compare to the sight of thousands of wildebeest as far as the eye can see.

Your grand finale is at one Africa’s most celebrated destinations: the stunning Victoria Falls. You have three days to spend exploring the Falls, cruising on the meandering Zambezi River and catching your breath before you fly home.

Itinerary

Day to day

‘Jambo’ is the daily greeting in Tanzania and soon you will be saying it automatically to everyone you come across! After flying into Arusha Airport, you will be welcomed by a driver for the short trip to Rivertrees Country Inn. Arusha is a small town surrounded by coffee plantations and protected by the peak of Mount Meru. Rivertrees is the epitome of this ‘country life’ with lush gardens, stone, timber and thatch architecture, and a classic bungalow layout.

Shake off any jet-lag with a dip in the swimming pool or a stroll around the manicured garden. The next morning sees you set off, as so many others have done, to the safari wonderland of Tarangire.
